Game fell through the letterbox for me too today :). Seems fantastic, handling is so much sharper and more confidence inspiring than last year’s. Funnily enough one of the main shifts forward for me is the with the sound, they’ve really gone to town on it this year, not just the engine noises but also smaller things like the air rushing past your head in cockpit mode and all the incidental noises that happen in surround sound the whole way around the track. Really impressive stuff.
I should also add that driving with all assists off is a lot ‘easier’ now, mainly because you get a lot more feedback from the car so can correct things before it goes wrong, at least when using a wheel
